The latest additions to the Geelong and District database and web site include a very special file donated by Thelma Birrell. It is from the diaries of Augusta BOSTOCK [1833-1920]. The diaries have not yet been indexed in the Geelong and District database but are fully text searchable as a .pdf file.
We now have 1,398,026 records in the Geelong and District database.
This is what’s been added since the last major update on 27 January:
- Geelong District: Names mentioned in the Geelong Advertiser 1865 – 40 entries
- Colac District: Names mentioned in the Colac Herald 1887 & 1901 – 76 entries
- Birregurra District: Names mentioned – various sources 1867 & 1897 – 88 entries
- Geelong District: Entries from the Investigator journal – 78,182 entries
- Geelong District: Midwives from the Victoria Government Gazette 1918-19, 1921, 1923, 1926-30, 1932 – 588 entries
- Geelong District: Surnames of Interest – 24 entries
Details on these indexes can be found in the Geelong & District Potpourri pages.
And don’t forget to search again for your ancestors in the Geelong & District Database – they could have been in the last load of additions!
